ISAACs Eye to post .png

At the Greek Cultural Center’s

Astoria Playhouse

A Play About Love Ambition and Gatekeeping

This is truly a beautiful play about the complications of dreaming big in a world that wants to keep you down.

Isaac's Eye is a half-fictional account of the early professional career of famous scientist Isaac Newton. The play imagines that certain choices Newton made, especially in his relationships with others and with himself, dramatically affected his (and therefore our) way of seeing the world.

"Funny, intimate, great writing, absorbing, great acting, delightful, clever" One of the favorite quotes: "The caliber of acting here is some of the best bang-for-your-buck I've ever gotten in a New York City theatre ticket..." "Not a weak link in the cast"


We can't wait for you to see it!

The play features New York-based performers Reagan Tankersley as Isaac Newton, Kasey O’Brien as Catherine Storer, Isto Barton as Robert Hooke, and Jack Dryden as The Dying Man. Dryden will also direct the project with the help of Assistant Director Hannah Adrian and Stage Manager, Annie Sheehy.

It is presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC, servicing the Dramatist Play service Collection ( and the Actors Equity Association.

Special Event at the Astoria Playhouse of the Greek Cultural Center: “Off the Meter, On the Record”.  John McDonagh is a playwright, cab driver, comic, talk show host  and activist. "Off the Meter, On the Record" represents the culmination of a forty-year career of driving a yellow cab while trying to make a difference in the world. Written and performed by John McDonagh, directed by Ciaran O’Reilly, Founder of the Irish Repertory Theatre in NYC.


“From the plight of the NYC homeless to the crazy demands of Upper East Side matrons, McDonagh brings the audience from laughter to tears and back again faster than the apparition of umbrella dealers on a rainy day. Throw in his tales of brushes with the rich and famous, and you have Irish storytelling at its best.” (Irish Repertory Theatre)

Το The Maids είναι η ιστορία δύο αδελφών, υπηρετριών που φροντίζουν την περιουσία ενός νεαρού, πλούσιου ζευγαριού. Ενώ η προϊσταμένη τους, η κυρία, λείπει, οι αδελφές βάζουν εναλλάξ τα φορέματά της και κάνουν κουμάντο η μία στην άλλη. Σήμερα, όμως, μπορεί να έχουν κάνει κάτι που θα αλλάξει την πορεία της ζωής τους και θα μετατρέψει τη φαντασία σε πραγματικότητα. Αυτό το 75λεπτο ποιητικό θρίλερ προσφέρει μια θέση από την πρώτη σειρά στη μάχη ανάμεσα στη θεϊκή δύναμη μεταξύ της φαντασίας μας και των περιορισμών της οικονομικής μας κατάστασης. Είναι σίγουρο ότι θα ενθουσιάσει, και θα συναρπάσει σήμερα όσο και όταν πρωτοπαρουσιάστηκε το 1947.

The Maids by Jean Genet

In English with Greek Supertitles

The Maids is the story of two sisters, live-in maids, who care for the estate of a young, wealthy couple. While their superior, the Madame, is away, the sisters take turns putting on her dresses and bossing each other around. But today, they may have done something to change the course of their lives and turn fantasy into reality. This 90-minute poetic thriller provides a front-row seat to the battle between the Divine power between our imaginations and the limitations of our economic station. It's as sure to delight, excite, and mystify today as it was when it was first produced in 1947.

Το «Ποιος ανακάλυψε την Αμερική;» της Χρύσας Σπηλιώτη είναι ένα μικρό αριστούργημα με σχέσεις και χαρακτήρες μελετημένους με ψυχολογική ακρίβεια. Η Λιζα και η Καίτη δυο κορίτσια, μεγαλώνουν μαζί προσπαθόντας ν’ ανακαλύψουν τη ζωή και τα όνειρα τους. Οι ηρωίδες καταφέρνουν μέσα από τις γρήγορες “εικόνες” ν’ αποτυπώσουν την πορεία τους μέσα από τους προβληματισμούς, φιλοδοξίες και ματαιώσεις. Με χιούμορ και ελαφρότητα αντανακλούν μια ολόκληρη κοινωνία και τονίζεται η διαχρονικότητα. Το έργο διαδραματίζεται στη δεκαετία του ’90 αλλά παρακολουθώντας το ανακαλύπτουμε ότι τα πράγματα δεν έχουν αλλάξει. Η ζωή τους από 8 ως 88 χρόνων θα φανεί σαν μια στιγμή…όπως και η ζωή μας.


“Who discovered America” by Chryssa Spilioti is a small masterpiece with characters and relationships very well studied physiologically. Liza and Kate are two girls growing up together trying to discover their life and dreams. Through the “scenes” they able to capture their course of reflection, ambitions and frustrations. With humor and lightness, they reflect a society and timelessness is emphasized. The play takes place in 1990 but watching it we discover that nothing really has change. Their life from 8 to 88 years old will seem like a moment…just like ours.
